The so-called 5.0 society and education in the future

⭐ Not only the field of education and teaching, but the entire society has been revolutionized year after year through the emergence of new technologies.

If we compare, for example, the current context of remote teaching with the teaching of a few decades ago, it is possible to observe that there are few similarities between the two periods, so that technology played a drastic role in education.

A great example of this can be seen in the use of digital tools in the day-to-day life of schools and universities, represented by the use of projectors, multimedia material and countless other resources.

Therefore, the trend is that in the future, society will continue to witness revolutions caused by the emergence of new technologies.


But specifically in the field of education, what will future years be like? Will the teaching method be drastically changed? Will the classes be entirely digital and remote?

There are several questions that can be asked within this context and, in this article, we will try to clarify some of these points about what is currently called Society 5.0.

Still, the theme education and the use of new technologies in education have been widely discussed in society, so that there are great possibilities for several entrance exams and competitions to ask for a essay writing on distance education in your tests.

Therefore, it is extremely important to be aware of the subject, thinking about the preparation for different tests and competitions that can present this theme.


What are Society 4.0 and Society 5.0?

Our journey to understand the definition of these concepts starts in Japan, therefore, the country will be extensively analyzed throughout this article, also, to understand the context of the origin of this concept.


As seen above, technology is increasingly present in all sectors of society, so that today several digital technologies and tools in teaching, in commerce, services and in the most varied sectors of society.

THE prior, it is essential to understand what the 4.0 and 5.0 values refer to in these concepts. Both values are related to industrial and technological revolutions, so that the Society 4.0 is a product of the fourth industrial revolution, while Society 5.0 is seen as an evolution of the past.

So, to understand exactly the implications of these concepts, it is necessary that we understand what were the advents of each of these phenomena.

The fourth industrial revolution, also called Industry 4.0, or Society 4.0, is marked by technological advances such as:

  1. robotics
  2. Digital communication
  3. Cloud Storage
  4. Internet of Things

When we think about the fruits harvested by these technological advances, this is where we begin to understand what the concept of Society 5.0

Therefore, the technological and digital revolution experienced in Society 5.0 is guided by technological advances such as:

  1. big data
  2. Smart Cities
  3. Education 5.0
  4. Smart Home
  5. Robotized Medicine

Emergence of the concept of Society 5.0

As noted at the beginning of the article, our starting point to understand the emergence of this concept is Japan.

In 2016, the Japanese government launched a government and investment plan called Fifth Basic Science and Technology Plan, which listed a series of policies and innovations that should be drawn up by the country until this year.

Included in this Plan was the concept of Society 5.0, which should be a model of society to be aspired by Japan in the near future.


Furthermore, it is possible to say that the goals of Sociedade 5.0 are to bring, in addition to facilities through technology, health, social welfare, emergency medical assistance and, all of this, to the majority of the global population, not just to those has an income considered high.

A table published on the Cabinet Office platform, which according to the FIA blog is managed by the Japanese Prime Minister, brings us examples of problematic situations and a model of measures to be taken by Sociedade 5.0.

Increased energy demandReduction in greenhouse gases
Increased demand for foodReduced waste and increased production
international competitionHealthy and Renewable Industrialization
Concentration of income and wealthIncome redistribution and poverty alleviation

Therefore, according to the creators of this concept, technology should be used in social well-being, income and wealth distribution, reduction in environmental wear, aiming, in this way, to promote social equality, environmental well-being and population longevity.

Final considerations and education in the future

In addition to all the social well-being promoted by this new technological revolution, education will be impacted and transformed in an extremely positive way.

This is due to the fact that, according to a G1 report, the new era of education, or Education 5.0, will take into account the psycho-emotional well-being of students.

In addition, developments in skills such as environmental awareness, citizen attitude, inclusion and empathy will be encouraged, which should be on the educators' agenda, aided by various technological resources already used in Education 4.0.
